California Gun Laws Suck

MrColionNoir breaks his foot off in CA’s ass:

hahah “gangsters decide not to do a drive-by because the ammo tax exceeded their budget for the fiscal year”.  After that I would have liked to see a mic dropped, a slow walk off screen while the feedback wines and the video fades to black.

Some of the references he makes in the video are about the new group of bills moving through the legal system in California.

MrColionNoir is wearing the California No Right To Bear Arms T-Shirt from ENDO Apparel.  This shirt is mandatory if you live in CA, a must have if you live in the surrounding states, and highly recommended if you’re alive and breathing air in general.

Thoughts?  California gonna California?

I love how he called out the “Medicinal MJ” BS line that everyone has been trying to shove down our throats. The shit should be legal regardless of any “medicinal benefits” because quite frankly it is ridiculous that something so harmless should be illegal. Again, reference brainwashing political tactics.

Like my man Geo from Blue Scholars best said it “The more things outlawed the more outlaws run”.

There is so much logic in that video. More logic than California’s politicians can muster all together.

I’d love to buy the endo bear arms shirt, but only if a portion of the proceeds go towards a California pro 2a organization, like calguns.net, calguns foundation, or http://www.firearmspolicy.org/

Maybe a special run on the shirt?

A few things:

-Calguns.net is a forum and a business; the owner Paul Nordberg even says as much. It is not a 2A rights organization, just a soapbox for others at best, smug ivory tower at worst.

-CalGunsFoundation has recently had issues with answering their “24 hour hotline” and not even bothering to call legal firearm owners back when their help is needed… Gene Hoffman also donated to the Obama campaign fund…

Both of them are just as bad as California’s politicians with the only difference being the facade and guise of being pro-2A.

Firearms Policy Coalition the only decent one of the 3 to be honest.

California is in enough shit as it is without fueling these “organizations” and wasting more money on them lining their pockets for no help in return. ENDO is better off avoiding collaboration with them, as is CA firearm owners.

Apologies for the terrible grammar as well. Yeesh, my bad.

I’m all ears. Please provide proof to back up your accusations that Calguns is not a Pro-2A organization and just a facade for taking your donation money. Convince me that CGF is not working hard in the best interests of Cali’s Pro-2A community. If what you say is true, then that really sucks ass! Time to move to a free state.

Ill try and see if anyone still has the screen-caps; this was all seen during my time as a member of that forum (since 2008) and had popped up in various threads and the information had come out, but was subsequently blackhole’d and those users banned. CGF does have its early victories that established their reputation but there have been a lot of issues as of late that call their intentions into question, like their 24hr hotline not being answered and people not ever getting a call back after members had been charged with a firearms-related offense despite being in the clear of the murky and vague CA laws. In one of the same threads wondering about why no one got a call back, it came out that Hoffman made donations to the Obama campaign and screen-caps were posted of it and his account was shown as viewing the thread but he not once answered the concerns and questions that other members and firearm owners posted.

As much of a cop-out as it seems, a lot of it is seen on the forums but gets brushed under the rug as Nordberg has his mission of building CGN (totally separate and different from CGF) into a business venture and making it a household name when it comes to firearms in CA. As I said, I will try and see if I have the screen-caps saved and link to them here.

CA gun owners are getting screwed badly enough as it is and need all the (true/actual) help they can get and not be fleeced by those saying they’re on their side.

Down&OutInCA it sure seems like you have an ax to grind. Yes, http://www.calguns.net is a forum and a business, you have that right….

Your statement that CalGunsFoundation has recently had issues with answering their “24 hour hotline” and not even bothering to call legal firearm owners back when their help is needed. Do you expect the Calguns Foundation to get involved when someone is arrested for an illegibly configured AR-15, with a 30-round magazine that was seized during a raid on a Marijuana growing operation? Or when a gun owner had their guns seized when the police responded because he beat his wife?

I spent hours talking to a GI that came back from Iraq with a Traumatic Brain Injury, he couldn’t remember that he had called the hotline 3 times asking the same questions, and received a return call each time… I finally played stenographer and sent him an e-mail with all of his questions and the answers so he could refer to it later on.

Gene Hoffman also donated to the Obama campaign fund… Gene explained that in the thread on Calguns.net, but you should keep in mind that many people make nominal donations to the opposition so they get the campaign literature, and know what lies the opposition is spouting….

Who do you think backs the Firearms Policy Coalition, maybe you should read http://www.firearmspolicy.org/about/

No ax to grind, just pointing out the reality of the situation. Yes, I know CGF is part of the FPC; however, it’s far more than just them and actually is trying to make changes on both the state and national levels. In the last 2 months, there were 4 threads on CGF not returning phone calls on their hotline; if someone was posting their story and experience about not getting a call back or any help while being hassled by the police, I doubt it was over illegally configured firearms or having them in conjunction with a home growing operation or MMC, hence my use of “legal firearm owners”. As far as his donations, the first was for $500 and the other was for more in the most recent election. He gave one explanation and then answered no questions and then the thread was gone a few days later. Whether it was for access to the oppositions gameplan or not is a toss-up, it’s job security for him to have an anti-gun agenda in the headlines.

When I first joined, it really was a community and you could get help and now it’s turned into infighting and ivory tower smug snipes back and forth.

Nordberg/Kes also allowing the MagMagnet guy to be a paid advertiser and blackholing the resulting “WTF?” threads and banning users over questioning the call also points to things degrading since the former owner ran the forum before leaving over user info requests. It’s a bit ironic that they bitch and moan about the NSA reading their emails and following phone conversations but he and the mods go through members’ PMs.

No ax to grind, just saying it’s far different than the unified, rosy picture they like to paint; yes, those organizations did do a lot of great at one time, but now not so much. I think it’s more of the despair of watching a community fall apart after really making headway in this clusterfuck of legislation and infringements upon our Constitutional rights. Not out gunning for CGN and CGF, just don’t want others to buy into what’s now a facade of what it used to be.

When the politicians start to make sense, you know you are no longer in California.

Can we get California to secede from the Union?

I’m sure they will be willing to negotiate once they are no longer in the union.

The one constant all my CA friends have in their lottery winning fantasies is to leave the state.
